We're all about bringing you the freshest food and giving you biggest menu choice! We own and operate nine food and beverage outlets, that serve everything from sushi to tacos to our famous chicken po'boys. The menus might be different but the mission is the same, with each food outlet funneling a portion of contributions straight back into AMS Student Services. The Nest is also home to three non-AMS food outlets to make sure there's a place for every tastebud!
BLUE CHIP CAFE
Blue Chip Cafe brings together the very best of Blue Chip cookies and Bernoulli’s Bagels! You’ll also find a wide selection of baked goods, sandwiches, vegan, and gluten-free treats. We serve Spirit Bear coffee, specialty barista drinks and cold drinks. And we’ll serve this all with an extra-big smile if you bring your own mug, because the environment matters!*
GALLERY PATIO AND LOUNGE
The Gallery Patio and Lounge serves Pacific Northwest-inspired food with a strong focus on local ingredients, like our beer battered fish, using locally caught wild cod and R&B’s finest IPA. As well as a sprinkling of dishes from further afield, try our caprese salad or daal rice bowl for something different. And our drinks menu is one to be reckoned with, with craft beer a plenty, a selection of wines and a pretty fancy cocktail list, you’re sure to find a drink that perfectly matches your meal or light bite. We’ve also got a fantastic rooftop terrace!*
Grand Noodle EmporIUM
Serving both the classic Chinese take-out on the concourse and wide variety of pan-Asian menu offerings in a ‘grand’ 60-seat restaurant, this eatery is an exciting place for lunch, dinner or anytime you have a craving for authentic, Asian/Southeast Asian food. Thai curry, and Pad Thai are just a few of the many hearty comfort foods made to order.*
A fresh modern take on sushi offering maki rolls, nigiri, and other specialty Japanese food items like poke bowls and bento boxes.

Fresh, healthy tacos, burritos, quesadilla, and sides made to order. Choose from a variety of meat fillings, Oceanwise cod and some non-meat choices for our vegetarian and vegan amigos! Tacos come in a corn tortilla with the usual sides of shredded cabbage, cilantro and a lime wedge. Burritos and quesadilla come with a side of shredded cheese, salsa and sour cream, all wrapped up in a warm flour tortilla. We also serve this wonderful thing called ‘Iwana fries’ – tater tots LOADED with your choice of filling and queso sauce. It’s delicious.*
